    yeah blocks are the same other than camshaft bearing. I stuck a sierra 4x4 block in my turbo technics capri.

    Though I did have to swap the front covers on the block where the water pump bolts on.

    Did you buy that engine and stuff? Looks like a very good deal
    For all those parts you would definitely pay far more than 1000,- over here. I'm a bit jealous now...
